The DC LERA
Board of Governors invites you
to the monthly
Noon – Wednesday, February 24, 2016
at the historic Woman’s National Democratic Club
President and CEO of New America
Women Men Work Family
distinguished service as Professor of International, Foreign, and
Comparative Law at Harvard Law School and Dean of Princeton’s
Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Dr.
Slaughter accepted her dream job under Secretary Clinton as the
first female director of policy planning at the U.S. State
Department. The conflicting needs of parenting and profession,
however, led her in 2011 to return to an academic career that gave
her more time with her family.
This experience led Dr. Slaughter to question long-standing
assumptions about work, life, and family. Her 2012 article for
The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” created a
firestorm, sparked intense national debate, and became the
most-read article in the magazine’s history. In 2015, Dr.
Slaughter published the highly acclaimed “Unfinished Business:
Women Men Work Family,” challenging basic assumptions and
presenting a vision of what true equality between men and women
really means and providing a common banner under which both men
and women can advance and thrive.
The Officers and Board of Governors of the Washington, DC, Chapter
of the Labor and Employment Relations Association invite you to
join us for lunch on February 24th to hear Dr. Slaughter speak on
her experiences and vision.
